    An update picture. The cloudiness has cleared a lot and the fish have been in for awhile now and loving their new home. Luckily there was no casualties in the move.

    Unfortunately water got on one of our led power boxes so we'll have to replace that and some of the wood is still floating so the rocks are still there for now.

    Thank you so much! I love how the Geos are bigger than the rest of the fish but never bother them at all
